After a season of struggles on offense, Michigan is shaking up its coaching staff. The Wolverines will have a new offensive coordinator for the 2018 season.

According to Bruce Feldman, Michigan offensive coordinator Tim Drevno is set to resign. Drevno and passing game coordinator Pep Hamilton each made over $1 million last year, despite a subpar Michigan offense.

Drevno served as Michigan's offensive coordinator and offensive line coach for the last three seasons but came under fire from the fan base following an 8-5 season. The Wolverines offense ranked in the bottom-40 in scoring offense, behind over 80 other Division I programs.

Now the question becomes who will take over for Drevno as the new offensive coordinator? According to CBS Sports, former Ohio State offensive coordinator Ed Warriner is the favorite to become Michigan's new offensive line coach.

Meanwhile, the recent addition of Jim McElwain leads many to believe the former Florida head coach is in line to become the Wolverines' new offensive coordinator. He held the same position under Nick Saban at Alabama before leaving to coach at Colorado State.

Stay tuned for the latest coaching news.
